Rein it in

H&M continues to be the most annoying place to shop. When I spied another blogger wearing this horse print top, I fell in love with it. I then went hunting for it and searched three different H&Ms (in three different states!) before I finally found it.

But I like it. And a lot of other people like it too. I got two compliments on it! None from my Sister however, who gave me the "You are seriously going to wear that in public?" look when I victoriously waved it in her face.

hehehe I think it's a cute top! I can't believe you have 3 H&Ms near you! Oh how I wish I was that lucky, I love the booties too. =)

Rebecca said...

I like that top. The H&M near me is always crowded and poorly organized.

Alex Elizabeth said...

OMG you got to wear shorts today? You must have had way nicer weather. Jealous. The only way I'm going to be doing shorts and a blazer is with this season is with tights :(

The things a woman will do when on a mission for a good horse print top!

I think it's a gorgeous top!!! An animal print top is on my list of things to get after my shopping ban! Shopping at H&M and F21 can be super exhausting and annoying, especially when I see something online and CANNOT find it in the store. Good thing you found this one!

kileen said...

very cute printed blouse!! i have an animal print list on my wislist too! and beautiful sunset pictures!

cute & little

Claire said...

haha, your sister totally sounds like my sister! and i know how you feel about H&M. I went in looking for a floppy hat and they were like, we don't have it. will you get more? they said no. maybe in spring. what?!!! i was annoyed. but anyway, i love this horse shirt! soooo cute, especially with those shorts!

Ulrika said...

I love the sunset and the outfit, you look amazing in these pictures ! I have a similar top, but with a bird pattern. My bf gave me a "seriously ? you're wearing that ?"-look when I bought it, but I love it and people love it, so who cares :D

i think i would have traveled far and wide for a blouse that cute, too. h&m is kind of annoying, but they have such cute & affordable stuff!

It looks great paired with the tweed shorts, very heritage!

The thing I'm most in love with are those SHOES. (Not saying the blouse isn't cute, haha.) But weren't you cold in those shorts today??

FashionJazz said...

Loving your shirt :) xxx

TaraMixandMatch said...

I actually like the shirt as well and would totally buy it if I could find in my size...but that hasn't happened :) Gorgeous photo location!

Diana Mieczan said...

That top is amazing...I totally adore it, sweetie. Have a great day. Kisses

Courtney Erin said...

I'm glad you were finally able to find it because it's pretty sweet...especially with the shorts.

The whole look is great and worth the effort...don't worry about your sister...does she look this fabulous?

Style Journey said...

That is really cute top! It looks great with your shorts and booties. I can't even think about wearing shorts right now. It was 48 degrees this morning!

Autumn Van Weir said...

I love the shorts!! Such a cute fall outfit!

Ki said...

I went crazy looking for this shirt too! I found it at my local H&M ONCE and thought i would get it later - haven't seen it since :(

it looks amazing on you though, especially with those shorts :)

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

I'm like that with Zara. I'll spy a cute new something on another blogger and will never ever be able to find it at my local store. So glad they have online shopping now - wish H&M would get on with it too!

jess said...

That blouse looks great. It has an interesting print.

Vanessa said...

I love the top, but I did laugh at your description of your sister's reaction. It sounds like something my sister would say to me!
I wish I had an H&M near me. The closest is at least 250 miles away (and, based on your experience, even if I made the trip there would be no guarantee that they would have the item I was looking for!)

Amber Blue Bird said...

i would have complimented you on that blouse too if i saw you in public instead i will compliment you here....cute blouse :)

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

I think this horse top is super cute! I'm glad you managed to find it, even though it took a lot of work ;)

You look very happy and pretty in these pictures btw, great post!

Love the top paired with the tweedy shorts. I need some tweedy shorts, I think.

Sal said...

I'm definitely with you on this one: That blouse is MARVELOUS!

Sarah said...

I really like the dressy shorts.

I have those exact same shoes! They were one of six pairs that Lisa from http://sentimentalistlisa.blogspot.com/ sent home with me when I visited her in September.

rlutz said...

That top styled with tweed is perfection!

Gemini Tauberge said...

love that boxy purse! and the setting of these photos, such pretty light.

The Closet Shopper said...

It's really cute. I can't believe you sister didn't love it too. I really avoid H&M but I too find myself in there every now and again. And it's usually because another blogger found something that I have to own. ha.

xo,
Tracy

Alyssa said...

I CANNOT WAIT for when they introduce online shopping! I have been searching for the orange tie front version with 0 luck. Glad you found the top!! Nothing like a little fashion perseverance.

skippysays said...

You're the second blogger I've spotted that top on and I'm dying for it! A trip to H&M is in my future for sure :)

it is a fabulous blouse...i will take anything with horses on it, even if it means trudging through messy unorganized stores!

Mommyblogger said...

I gotta disagree with your sister, that top is amazing!!!

Marie said...

Yay for finding the top!:D I like it, it's whimsical and fun.:D

I like the horse print blouse! I find h&m an annoying place to shop. It's so crowded and busy plus I don't have one near me and only get to go when traveling... and by that time the good stuff's one and sizes are all picked over. For some reason I find F21 easier to shop at.

Shea said...

I was in a horse print mood this week too, so of course I'm a fan. I had a couple of students who thought it was weird. One asked, "so, do you like horses?" Anyway, I love the blouse, especially with those shorts!

Kasmira said...

I love the print! So fun and whimsical.

I almost wore my Madden Girl booties today! Did you get yours at TJ Maxx, too? Talk about a maddening place to shop!

What a fun print!
